Scout describes this as “a backpack for your truck” and we think that about sums it up. With a dry weight of just over 900 pounds, it doesn’t take a beast to haul the Yoho, even mid-sized trucks — Tacomas, Rangers, Frontiers, and the like — can haul this over-bed camper. It’s compact and minimalist with room for four during the day around the L-shaped seating area, and the same sleeping capacity at night with the over-cab bed and dining-area conversion.
Part of what makes the Yoho so light is the aluminum exoskeleton and composite panel construction. They can not only handle four-season travel, they’ll also never rot like a wood frame, which just means more years of traveling with it. Every camper comes standard with 160 watt solar panel up top that routes into a Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium Power Station with two outlets and a USB port. For water, there’s a 4.9 gallon Lifesaver Jerry Can with a spray nozzle and a charcoal filtration system that lets you filter water at your destination instead of hauling it all on-board.
There’s a slew of options to make the Yoho even more comfortable, like a Dometic chest freezer, a Rhino Rack Batwing awning, and a portable indoor/outdoor cooktop. But even without the add-ons, this is still a pretty sweet and simple set up that combines the comfort and convenience of a rigid camper, with the portability of a truck shell. Before options, the Yoho starts at $19k, and the good news is, mid-sized truck owners won’t have to buy a new vehicle to enjoy it.
